Laurel, Maryland (PressExposure) October 26, 2009 -- "Having resolved to build electric vehicle of your own, Just like in life, before one set out to do something, a proper knowledge is highly needed" Amaechi Paul said. Now one needs to learn about electric motors. The following are considerations in choosing which vehicle to install, he stated.
1. How big of a motor do you need? 2. Do you use D.C or A.C motor? 3. Detailed plan to go about it. 4. Do you choose a car or truck?
A featherweight vehicle is most suitable for electric vehicle conversion; the vehicle should also have ample room for batteries. This featherweight vehicle chassis should be strong enough to contain the additional weight of the batteries and D.C electric vehicle motor. These are basically the main concern when thinking of owning of an electric motor.
He stated that big companies are installing A.C motors. A.C is light for its power output and they have a powerful charging device that works off of your braking system when the A.C motor is slowed down that energy is actually transferred to the batteries. D.C motor is preferred to A.C motor, because A.C is difficult to install and is expensive. So many people embrace D.C for their electric motors.
